It’s just another (Sun)day… and Missouri

Not in America anymore, Toto

Finally, I was able to get out of Orlando for a while. Monday prior I left America for Trinidad and Tobago. Locals here simply refer to it as T & T or TT.

Back a few years ago when I was a brand-new Floridian I decided to go on a deep-sea fishing trip with a good friend. We headed out to the Atlantic Ocean from Port Canaveral and it was fabulous... for about an hour.
